I have been researching a way to improve my dust setup. I have a 2hp 220 v dc with a just installed internal thien seperator. I have 6” pvc pipe to 4” drops to most areas of my shop.
Anyway I been thinking of going bigger hp but got to thinking( ?) where did I need it? My chopsaw back dust port, my over blade table saw port (saw stop) and my drill press are the weak points. All these weak points are where I am necking down to 1.5”. My router, tablesaw bottom, jointer, planer, and drum sander are working without issues.
It seams that my shop vac does much better at the 1.5” piping then my dc does necked down to 1.5”. So I was wondering if it would be a better idea to pipe a small diam. second system with a shop vac. It seems that vacs are less effected by piping as they put whole house vacs in homes.
Pretty pricey but found this
Or would a 5hp dc necked down to 1.5” equal a shop vac
